BEACHES BACK IN BUSI­NESS

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Front Page -

THE Queens­land Gov­ern­ment has launched a $750,000 cam­paign to en­tice vis­i­tors back to south­east Queens­land beaches fol­low­ing the March 11 oil spill that con­tam­i­nated 60km of coast­line. The tele­vi­sion, ra­dio and on­line cam­paign will air in Bris­bane, Syd­ney and north­ern NSW.

All Sun­shine Coast beaches have re­opened af­ter a huge clean-up. The spill from the Pa­cific Ad­ven­turer pol­luted beaches from More­ton Is­land to Coolum on the Sun­shine Coast. Noosa was not af­fected. More than 200,000 litres of oil con­tam­i­nated the shores of More­ton and Bri­bie is­lands as well as parts of the Sun­shine Coast af­ter the Hong Kong-based ship, bat­tered by trop­i­cal cy­clone Hamish, lost 31 con­tain­ers of am­mo­nium ni­trate, which rup­tured the ship’s hull.
